Democrats Are Preparing To Reverse A Trump-Era Tax Move — And It Could Cut Taxes For America's Wealthiest Residents

 Democrats are about to include a tax break in their $1.75 trillion social spending plan that will overwhelmingly benefit higher-earning Americans.

On Tuesday, Rep. Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey wrote on Twitter that the provision had been added into the plan. A Democratic aide familiar with negotiations told Insider that Democrats were eyeing a five-year tax break that runs through 2025, a development first reported by Punchbowl News.

Biden: China Made 'A Big Mistake' By 'Not Showing Up' At U.N. Climate Change Conference

 

GLASGOW, Scotland — President Biden criticized China on Tuesday evening, saying at the U.N. Climate Change Conference that “it’s been a big mistake, quite frankly, for China ... not showing up” at the event, also known as COP26.

Responding to a reporter’s question at a press conference in Glasgow, Biden acknowledged that the conference’s momentum has been slowed by the fact that the top leaders of some large countries are not attending.

“China and Russia not showing up and Saudi Arabia not showing up is a problem,” Biden said.

“We showed up. We showed up,” he said, repeating himself for emphasis. “And by showing up we’ve had a profound effect on the way I think the rest of the world is looking at the United States and its leadership role.”

A top priority of the U.S. delegation at the conference has been to reestablish American leadership on fighting climate change following then-President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement in 2020.

Biden apparently hoped that by boasting of the prestige his leadership on addressing climate change has brought to the United States, he could encourage China and Russia, which view themselves as world powers in competition with the U.S.

“The rest of the world is going to look to China and say, ‘What value added are they providing?’” Biden said. “And they’ve lost the ability to influence people all around the world, and all the people here at COP. The same, I would argue, with regard to Russia.” Read More

5- To 11-Year-Olds Can Now Get A Covid-19 Vaccine In The US

 

(CNN)US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Tuesday evening she was endorsing a recommendation to vaccinate children ages 5-11 against Covid-19, clearing the way for immediate vaccination of the youngest age group yet in the United States.

"CDC now expands vaccine recommendations to about 28 million children in the United States in this age group and allows providers to begin vaccinating them as soon as possible," the agency said in a statement.
"We know millions of parents are eager to get their children vaccinated and with this decision, we now have recommended that about 28 million children receive a COVID-19 vaccine," Walensky said. Shortly after she issued her recommendation, staff at Hartford HealthCare in Connecticut vaccinated a half-dozen boys and girls, streaming the event on Facebook.
"As a mom, I encourage parents with questions to talk to their pediatrician, school nurse or local pharmacist to learn more about the vaccine and the importance of getting their children vaccinated," Walensky said. Read More

An Asteroid Barely Missed Earth Last Week, And No One Knew It Was Coming

An asteroid about the size of a refrigerator shot past Earth last week, and astronomers didn't know the object existed until hours after it was gone. 

It was a close call (from a cosmic perspective); the space rock's trajectory on Oct. 24 carried it over Antarctica within 1,800 miles (3,000 kilometers) of Earth — closer than some satellites — making it the third-closest asteroid to approach the planet without actually hitting it, CNET reported.

Scientists were unaware of the object, dubbed Asteroid 2021 UA1, because it approached Earth's daytime side from the direction of the sun, so the comparatively dim and small visitor went undetected until about 4 hours after passing by at its closest point, according to CNET.

But with a diameter of just 6.6 feet (2 meters), UA1 was too small to pose a threat. Even if it had struck Earth, most of its rocky body would have burned away in the atmosphere before it could hit the ground, CNET reported.

Comets and asteroids that orbit within our cosmic neighborhood, approaching Earth within 1.3 astronomical units (120.9 million miles, or 194.5 million kilometers) are known as near-Earth objects (NEOs), according to NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS). NASA uses telescopes on the ground and in space to find and monitor NEOs; to track their orbits and identify their size, shape and composition; and to pinpoint potentially hazardous objects, managing these efforts through the agency's Planetary Defense Coordination OfficeRead More

COP26: Bezos Pledges $2bn For Restoring Nature

 

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has said his Bezos Earth Fund will spend $2bn (£1.5bn) restoring landscapes and transforming food systems.

He told the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow that he had grasped nature's fragility when he travelled into space.

Entrepreneurs including Mr Bezos have been criticised for spending money on trips into space instead of solving problems on Earth.

Amazon has also been criticised by its workers over environmental practices.

Speaking to the COP26 conference, Mr Bezos said: "In too many parts of the world, nature is already flipping from a carbon sink to a carbon source."

The Bezos Earth Fund plans to spend $10bn fighting climate change overall. Read More

Trump Says 'Israel Literally Owned Congress' In Interview

 

Former US president Donald Trump said "Israel literally owned Congress" in an interview with Ari Hoffman on 570 KVI Friday.
During the interview, Hoffman mentioned to Trump that he had bought yarmulkes with the former president's name on them and that when he asked the vendor if they sold Joe Biden ones, they laughed.
Trump quickly went on a tangent, saying the biggest change he had seen in Congress was the shift of power from legislators under Israel's influence to anti-Israel politicians:
"Well, you know the biggest change I've seen in Congress is Israel literally owned Congress – you understand that, 10 years ago, 15 years ago – and it was so powerful, it was so powerful, and today it's almost the opposite," Trump said.
The former president referred to certain left-wing Progressives in Congress who he accused of hating Israel. "You have – between AOC [Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez] and [Rep. Ilhan] Omar and these people that hate Israel, they hate it with a passion – they're controlling Congress and Israel is not a force in Congress anymore, it's – I mean – it's just amazing. I've never seen such a change," he said. Read More
